From the USA Today bestselling author of the Bliss series comes a new spin off series featuring your favorite Bliss series characters who are yet to meet their match.

Matt Taylor’s motto:
“I’m the king of the cut ‘n’ run. I wine them, dine them, then slide inside them, making sure I get up, get dressed and get out before they can even utter the words “second date.”

Mia Roberts’ motto:
“I’m queen of the chase. I meet them, greet them, date them and leave them. A social butterfly, I’m happily single and happy to stay that way.”

The players have been found.

The challenge has been set.

Whatever happens, they’ll soon find out that playing the game can get you played in the best possible way.

Sometimes the attraction shared between two people is stronger than either one can control.

This is what our two characters Matt and Mia find themselves fighting, as well as a few other obstacles that they have tossed into the mix.  But, sometimes the electrical pull between hearts is just stronger than the doubts that your brain can come up with and the heart will ultimately win almost every time.

BJ Harvey gives us a book that is full of emotions.  Not only our Matt and Mia conflicted over the feelings that seem to be plaguing each of them, but the snappy comebacks and overall humor will keep you feeling upbeat even when the situation is on the verge of turmoil.  The friends and family that add to the extensive list of characters adds just that much more spark to this story.

In the end you have a very strong romance story that is full of heated moments in and out of the bedroom, with just the right amount of added drama to give us that story line that we all crave.  And we don't want to forget the best part, she doesn't leave us hanging on that cliff that sometimes seem to happen.  Yep you get the entire story in one book which is my overall preference.

So yes, this is a book that you really will want to read.  I mean what happens when the ultimate playboy gets the tables flipped on him and he has to finally fight for the girl that he wants to keep instead of pushing her out the door.

"A hot-as-fuck woman palms my dick and attacks my mouth in the middle of the dance floor to ward off a bunny boiler?"  "You can bet your ass I'll like it."  ~ Matt ~

So double date disaster - check.   Getting caught out by someone we know - check.  Person we know happening to be the same guy I'm having dinner with next week - check.  Successfully clearing my head about Matt and how he affects me - go to jail, do not pass go, and do not collect two hundred dollars.  ~ Mia ~

“Have you ever measured it?” I ask with a grin, as his eyes grow wide.
“No,” he replies with an awkward laugh, totally giving himself away. “Why would I? It does the job,” he says, sounding defensive.
“Well it certainly doesn’t stop short, does it?”
He rolls me onto my back and hovers over me. “It always rises to the challenge.”
I wrap my arms around his shoulders and glide my fingers through his hair. “It’s a hard job, but somebody’s got to do it.”
“I’m inches above the rest.”
“There’s stiff competition,” I add, lifting my hips to deepen the friction.
“There’s no contest, Legs. I’m the biggest you’ll ever have.”
“Will I, though? Should I have it . . . again?” I whisper.
“It would be poor form to leave me in such a state, Legs.”
“It would, wouldn’t it?” I muse. “I must stay strong, rigid even . . .”
“I think that’s my job. Besides, it might be bad for my health to stay in this state.” He lowers his forehead to mine, his eyes boring into me with such carnal heat, it’s a wonder I don’t spontaneously combust.
“Blue bean is just as real as blue balls, you know. I read about it in Cosmo.”
He chuckles, his shaking body sending delicious vibrations throughout my body. “We can’t have that now, can we?”
His lips brush over mine, so soft and gentle. My body flushes in anticipation of what I hope will be amazing sex with a very sexy—and talented—guy. “I believe it’s time I proved my worth.”
